National Speaking Tour - One Year On
One year ago…
I spoke in four different cities to over 1,200 women. Had you told me something like this was possible 3 years ago, I would have laughed, “No way! Me? Who would want to listen to what I have to say?” Until one day I realised that my story could impact people in a deep and profound way, potentially helping them feel less alone and that they hold the power of their future in their own mind and hands. This is my purpose in life, this is my why. I want to turn my pain and experience into a source of inspiration and support for others who may have experienced similar hardships growing up, or may be experiencing it now.
For the tour, I made a conscious decision that I was going to be brave and vulnerable and own my mess in hopes of inspiring others and sharing how hard feeling worthy was and still is for me. That despite all my obstacles and push backs from the universe, I kept going, and through it I created the most beautiful life imaginable for myself. And in saying all that, my mental health still comes to challenge me at times, but that in itself is okay; those of us who have suffered abuse and neglect are not alone in the fight to feeling content and loved.
I had a 2 year old and a 6 month old, a supportive husband and an amazing event planner/assistant who helped me bring my dream to life, as well as incredibly generous brands who came on board and understood my vision before it became a reality.
And to think I questioned whether a ticket would be sold. 💗
Thank you to my incredible community for supporting me. 1 year on, I am still so humbled by and grateful for such an experience.
